They take away the masks, and the men scrabble futilely and emit their lives in bubbling howls of air.
Они снимают с них маски, и люди бьются в судорогах, и жизнь уходит из них пузырящимися воплями.

The short, fat cyclist stared blankly for a moment, then with a helpful cry began to scrabble in the road-grit.
Секунду толстяк оторопело смотрел на нее, а потом с жаром принялся сгребать с дороги пыль и мусор.

She scrabbled along the mantel, pushing stubs of candles stuck on cracked saucers this way and that, lifting first a kerosene lantern and then a battery flashlight, looking fixedly for a moment at a drawing of a young boy and then putting it aside.
Она порылась на каминной доске, среди треснутых блюдец с огарками, достала сначала керосиновую лампу, потом ручной фонарик на батарейках, несколько секунд смотрела на рисунок молодого человека, прежде чем отложить его в сторону.

I was scrabbling with the catches on the car’s hood, trying to work out how I was going to fill the six-inch gap between the frame and the windscreen, when I felt a hand on my shoulder.
Я как раз возился с защелками складной крыши, пытаясь разобраться, как бы половчее заполнить шестидюймовый промежуток между рамой и лобовым стеклом, когда почувствовал на плече чью-то руку.

I scrabbled away just before it hit the ground where I had lain.
И едва я успел отползти, как на то место, где я только что лежал, рухнул камень.

They scrabbled in the wreckage or stood on street corners listening to the dirge of the river, and waited for the Russians to round them up in the name of Karl Marx.
Они блуждали по обломкам или стояли на углах улиц, вслушиваясь в похоронную песнь реки и ожидая, когда придут русские и сгонят их в стадо во имя Карла Маркса.

Salaud,' and the cat, as though it took the insult to itself, leapt at the nearest tree: its claws scrabbled in the bark and held.
Кошка, словно приняв оскорбление на свой счет, прыгнула на дерево, вцепилась когтями в кору и повисла.

The smell hit Blakely first. The rot of a charnel house. Then the sound. Scraping and scrabbling.
Первым был запах – гнилое зловоние склепа, а потом звук, скребущий, царапающий.

More men surfaced, breaking the water in little bursts and scrabbling desperately at their helmets and at the ladders, fighting to get into the air.
Наверх, поднимая фонтаны брызг, всплывало все больше людей. Они тут же отчаянно принимались сдергивать шлемы, карабкаться по лестницам, чтобы поскорее оказаться на воздухе.
